Topsham Sea Scouts has hailed its annual winter fair a success after raising £642 towards a new hut.

Scouts, cubs and beavers set up stalls at St Margaret’s Church, Topsham, to help raise funds for an ongoing campaign to replace the former scout hut in Ferry Road, after floods in 2014 made it unusable.

Topsham Sea Scout group leader Joy Lovett said: “I am very pleased with the amount we raised.

“It was very successful and we had fun hosting it. The children who came along had a lot of fun.

“It was a wonderful occasion and a lot of the community came to support us.”

She added: “The scout leaders worked very hard keeping the occasion going and the committee is planning for the group’s future and the new venue.”

Joy also said the group was looking for scout leaders.
